CHICAGO, IL - Hasbro announced a major upgrade of the Atlas Planning Suite from John Galt Solutions, which will improve the global sales forecasting and demand planning process for dozens of field sales personnel.

Hasbro wanted their field sales team to more rapidly produce item forecasts for the global sales forecasting process. With the updates to John Galt's Planning Portal, Hasbro's sales team will save large amounts of time on forecast entry and benefit from a robust data warehouse allowing their team to query and report on relevant data more easily. In the future, Hasbro intends to use Atlas Planning to analyze POS data, build real-time dashboards, and measure performance.

Hasbro will deploy the Atlas Planning Suite to over 30 countries on 5 continents, including the US, Canada, Hong Kong, France, Australia, Brazil, and more.

"We have had great success with John Galt over the last decade," says Jeff Herndon, VP of Business Analytics at Hasbro. "This upgrade will help to get a better understanding of our customer demand while running our process more smoothly."

"Hasbro has been a wonderful partner for 10 years," says Annemarie Omrod, founder and CEO of John Galt Solutions. "We look forward to supporting their global sales & operations planning process as it continues to grow in scope and sophistication."
